Philipponnat Reserve Rose (375ml Half Bottle)
Reserve Rose is true to the tradition of style at the House of Philipponnat where taste takes precedence over color, combining intensity, freshness, and elegance.
A non-vintage wine like the Royale Reserve, Reserve Rosee abides by the historic tradition of style at the House of Philipponnat. The majority of the blend comprises the rich and powerful grapes from the beautiful vineyards of Montagne de Reims in Ay and Mareuil-sur-Ay and its three year ageing process gives it a pleasant complexity without taking anything away from its freshness.
On the eye: Light pink, slightly salmony color that can become coppery over time. Delicate and creamy bubbles.
On the nose: Berrylike with nuances of cherry and wild strawberry. With time, some hints of mandarin and pink grapefruit rind will develop.
On the palate: Fine clean attack. Full and long mouth, prolonged by a good acidity and a light astringency that brings out the fruit.
An ideal match for smoked fish, smoked meats (ham, bacon…), pâtes and pink meats (veal, lamb).
With desserts, one should avoid very sweet recipes, favoring simple red berries, served either alone or in soups. It is also lovely as an aperitif or on its own.
